Arriving in the squalid, seething port of Genoa, Harry Ludlow and his partner and younger brother, James, find it a tinderbox of tension, fed by the discovery of a hanged British sea captain and packs of English and French sailors at each other's throats.

"Not content to outflank and outgun C. S. Forester with his vivid and accurate shipboard action, storm havoc and battle scenes, Donachie has made Ludlow the most compulsively readable amateur detective since Dick Francis' latest ex-jockey." -- Cambrige Evening News "High adventure and detection cunningly spliced." -- Times of London Literary Review "Skullduggery ... rousing battles. Authenticity guaranteed: taste the salt and smell the powder. Donachie sails on without a rival in sight." -- Times Literary Review
